One complaint, when you get the set-up close, it's hard not to over drive corners. Randy, Burt, and I all have slightly differant S/U's and all three seem to work good. The track had no Sorex on the wall so I ran old well run RP30's and the car ran great untill 5th lap in the main when they went away. Wanted Randy to try my car, but by then there was no point. One more week to practice before Reedy. This car is just so fun. BTW Randy's car looked 'preddy' dialed.

Are you looking into getting into touring car racing or into drifting? They're two totally different things for us. You'll need different equipment, different car more than likely, etc... if you're going to drift and not actually race.

Anyone know of a good place to get a voltage regulator for a lipo receiver pack? Lipo is 7.4 volts so I need a 6 volt regulator? Never messed with this before and this is my first time so if anyone has any experiance in this and can help let me know.

Thanks
Brian

Marcos linked to low voltage cutoffs. You want a voltage regulator. Here's some good ones:

They are available as straight input-->6.0V, and also with a switch.
